Accounts from people at the signing

From Chrissie:

Tori actually started signing at 6:45 instead of 7, and the entire signing went pretty smoothly.  Everybody seemed to get about 2 minutes with her.  The Borders security was really strict about what was to get signed.  Nothing other than the new book and new cd were allowed up to the front which was sort of a shame. No cameras at the front, no phones, or anything else. Anyway, she looked fantastic and was in a great mood.

From Andrea Norstad:

I'd never met Tori outside of a meet & greet, so the whole *actual orderly line* thing was ... refreshing. They had the line divided into four sections depending on when you bought your ticket. I guess the first fifty people to get a ticket had one hole punched in it, the second fifty had two holes, etc. My brother and I were in the first fifty. We didn't have to wait long at all. Everything seemed very organized and orderly. I love the fact that there were actual tickets for this. I think they should have been advertised better from the start, but the end result was good. Or maybe just for me personally, because there's no way I could have gotten out of work early to wait in line all day.

Tori (and Joel) came through a little before seven. She was wearing indescribably awesome shoes and a fantastic plaid blazer. I hope someone sends pictures. She came past the line and we were all so busy looking at her and taking it all in that no one even clapped until the Borders employee said something about it. She laughed and went into a little alcove they had set up with a table, water bottles and pens. She posed for pictures for a few moments and then the line started moving. She stood up next to the table instead of sitting behind it, and spent a nice amount of time talking to people while signing their two items. And there was a little bit of privacy while Joel prepped the next person's book and cd.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to say to her. I figured I'd know in the moment. I ended up saying that I've been going to the Chicago shows since 1994, and I've grown up with her. She said that meant a lot to her, and gave me a hug, and it was SO WONDERFUL. As much as I like (well, most of) the new album, I've felt distanced from the image of Tori lately. She seems less approachable, more fashion diva. It's so not true. She's the same Tori behind the couture, she still gives and gives. It was fantastic to be able to thank her for that.

And now I really can't wait for the shows. :)
